Community News Submission

Submission Form and Guidelines for community event and public service announcements

 

We're always pleased to help nonprofit organizations publicize their programs and upcoming events. (Sales promotions by commercial enterprises do not qualify as nonprofit activities unless 100 percent of the promotion's revenue is donated to charity.)

COMMUNITY EVENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Announcements of nonprofit community events are typically NOT broadcast over the air. They are, instead, posted on the website.
  • Material must be written and submitted USING THE FORM BELOW by a member of the organization.
  • Web announcements cannot promote regularly recurring meetings, religious services, appeals for funds that would benefit a single individual or family, or cause-oriented protests/demonstrations/rallies/marches. Sales promotions by commercial enterprises do not qualify unless 100 percent of the promotion's revenue is donated to charity.
  • Announcements should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the desired first publication date.

Please be certain your announcement answers the five W's:
WHO is the organization sponsoring the event?
WHAT is the event and what is happening that would interest the general public?
WHEN will the event happen? (Include dates and times)
WHERE will the event happen? (Include the street address and directions if the site is difficult to find.)
WHY is the event important to the community … why are you raising funds or promoting awareness/the cause/the issue?
